The text discusses new conceptual changes in the design philosophy away from multistage expendable vehicles to winged, reusable launch vehicles and presents an overview of the systems engineering and vehicle design process as well as systems trades and analysis. Individual chapters are devoted to specific disciplines such as aerodynamics, aerothermal analysis, structures, materials, propulsion, flight mechanics and trajectories, avionics and computers, and control systems. The final chapters deal with human factors, payload, launch and mission operations, safety, and mission assurance.See Probabilistic risk assessment PrADO-Hy code, 574 Prandtl-Meyer pattern, 822 Preburner-type engine, 370 ... model, 56, 92-93, 436 Programmable controller (PC), 718 Project organization, 14-19 Project Rover, 414 Project stages , 12-14anbsp;...
